See that boy rite there ? That’s my friend , Trayvon “Slimm” Martin . I met him through his cousin one night at the movies . He was my date for the night . I’m telling you , as soon as I met him he cracked a joke , and had me laughing . That night there was a smile on my face the whole time . From my shyness to his funny personality , we had a good night . After that , we started to get to know eachother then started to talk on the next level . I use to call him my “Boo Thang” . I had mixed feelings about him . One day , I was head over feels . I couldn’t wait to get out of school cus he always called me when he got home; Especially on my worst days cus he cheered me up . But other days , I couldn’t find that spark . Idk what it was It just wasn’t connecting . During that one month we talked , it felt like alot . Only after knowing him a week , he knew something was wrong with me as soon as I answered the phone . He made me feel beautiful and good about myself . We always ranked eachother and had laughs about it . I remember one night I texted him "Hey Gummybear" and he replied "Snookumssss" . Lol , only Tray would actually say that back . I remember those nights where I use to wait for him to call . I loved his deep voice . I remember those nights where he use to fall asleep on the phone and I use to text him so the phone would vibrate on his ear to wake him up . Lol , I was annoying . But at the end of the day he was my boo thang . How did all that end ? I dropped him for another boy . Yes , I know it sounds horrible and it is . I SO regret it now that he’s gone , forever . I would do anything to give him a chance . I remember one night he told me that I was the type the he would wifey up , and can see himself going out with for a long time . Boy , when I got that text that he got shot & killed . I didn’t believe it . I didn’t completely click . TRAY out of all people , dead ? Naa , it can’t be . Its always the ones you least expect , you know ? The next day in school there was a sadness coming from everyone that knew him . It was hard trying to go throughout the day holding back the tears , but at lunch .. they came . I let it all out . What if !? What if I would’ve gave him a chance ? What If we would have went out ? He did not deserve to go like that . A boy that always kept a smile on his face and on yours , that minded his on buisness , with a dream of being a aviation mechanic .. all gone in a hot second . If your haven’t heard his story yet , I will sum it up as good as I can: Tray was visiting his mother in Sanford, Florida when he decided to walk to the store beacuse he was bored to get some skittles and iced tea for his little brother . When walking back with his hood and headphones on , he was approached by “the neighborhood crime watch captain”. They exchanged a few words & next thing your know witnesses hear Tray yelling for help , pleading for his life then BAM . shots were fired . A young boy , with a dream to pursue and a live still to live , dead . Trays killer has not been arrested yet , and this is why I’m here to tell you to please go to this website (http://www.change.org/petitions/prosecute-the-killer-of-17-year-old-trayvon-martin?utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition&utm_term=share_with_facebook_friends) and sign this petition to bring justice for Tray . His FULL story is on the website , written by his mother . Now , as the tears we all cry flow down our cheeks , its all to say that We miss you Tray . You will forever be in our hearts and justice WILL be served . You’re gone but never forgotten . I love you , and save a spot for me up there , ok my gummybear ?
Love, your Snookums <3
